             —                 Motor Yehicle Code


       Introduction

       Lift, Inc. of 7819 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles, California

       90046 has submitted an application requesting an exemption from Vehicle

       Code Section 27156 (Referencé — Exhibit A — AppTicatiow) for the "Lift

       Fuel Efficiency System".    This Section of the Vehicle Code prohibits the

       installation of any device or mechanism which would adversely affect the

       performance of the emission control system.      The applicant is requesting

       to extend their exemption to include the 1975 model year vehicles.


       Lift, Inc, was granted an exemption to VYehicle Code Section 27156

       by Executive Order D—23—2 dated July 12, 1974.      The staff has previously

       evaluated this device and found it to have no adverse effect on 1974 and
      older model—year vehicles (Reference — Exhibit C and Exhibit 0 — January

      22, 1974 and July 3, 1974 Staff Reports}.

On.    System Description

      The "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" is a vapor injector device where

      the vapor enters the engine through the PCV system (Reference —

      \Exhiblt B — Installation Instructibns).       The device consists of a

       plastic tee, plastic bottle, rubber hose, mounting brackets, and

       bottle cap containing an 0.022 inch restriction orifice.       For a

System" Vapor Injector for Compliance with the
Requirements of Section 27156 of the California              December 30, 1974
Motor Vehicle Code



     description concerning the operation of this device, refer to the

     staff report dated January 22, 1974 (Reference — Exhibit C).


     Thevfluid is a proprietary blend of      alcohol and water solution.

     This fluid is manufactured by Kem Krest Product      Company, 24684

     Hathaway, Farmington, Michigan 48024.     The composition of this fluid

     is identified by Kem Krest Specificat%on Number 1072 and is on file

    with the Air Resources Board.    The applicant has requested the fiuid

     composition be treated as confidential information.


III. System Evaluation

    bThe staff has determined from previous evaluations of vapor injector

     type devices on pre—1975 model—year vehicles that an increase in ex—

    haust emissions will not occur if the vapor bléed rate is limited to

     0.10 cubic feet per minute (cfm).     The vapor bleed rate of the "Lift

     Fuel Efficiency System" is limited to 0.10 cfm by using a 0.022 inch

    orifice diameter.    The staff believes the 0.10 cfm vapor bleed rate

    would not increase exhaust emissions on the 1975 model—year vehicies.


    However, the catalytic converter system used on some of the 1975 model—

    year vehicles can be degraded by certain chemical compounds.      Based on

    the information submitted by the applicant concerning the fluid composition,

    the staff investigated the effects of these chemicals on catalytic con—

    verters.   From this investigation, the staff ocncludes the Kem Krest fluid

    does not contain any chemical compounds which will reduce the effectiveness

    of the catalyst.

Motor Vehicle Code                                           December 30, 1974




IV.   Conclusion and Recommendation

      The staff believes the "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" would not have

      an adverse effect on the emission control system provided that the

      flow rate is limited to 0.10 cfm and the fluid is identical to
      those submitted to the staff.   The staff recommends that Lift,

      Inc. be granted an exemption to Section 27156 for the "Lift Fuel

      Efficiency System" on 1975 and older—model vehicles.

Ré: ° APPLICATION FOR EXEMPTION UNDER SECTION 27156 OF THE VEHICLE CODE
      OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA, FOR VEHICLES OF MODEL YEAR 1975.



        We, WILLIAM HARITON,       individually and as President of LIFT,             INC.,

A California Corporation,          and LIFT,     INC., A California Corporation,

do hereby, apply, request, and make application for exemptién from the

prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the device commonly

known as LIFT FUEL EFFICENCY SYSTEM,              an intake manifold vapor bleed.

It is hereby acknowledged that the Air Resources Board has previously

issued EXECUTIVE ORDER NO.             D—24 on January 28,      1974,    Executive Order

No.   D—24—1 on May 17,        1974,    and Executive Order No.         D—24—2 on July 12,

1974;    ail of these executive orders relating to the devise commonly

known as LIFT FUEL EPFICENCY SYSTEM.

        Executive Order No. D—24—2 of July 12,               1974 granted the exemption

from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1974

Model Year Vehicles and older.              The purpose of this request and

application is to continue this exemption for 1975 Model Year Vehicles

and older.

        LIFT,   INC., A California Corporation,          has established its home

office at 7819 Santa Monica Blvd, Los Angeles, California 90046.

Phone Number 213—656—2767.             It is proceeding with its marketing and

distribution of the LIFT FUEL EFFICENCY SYSTEM throughout the State of

California in conformity to and subject to all the rules,                    laws,   regula—

tions of the State of California and suject to direct control of the

policies and programs of the Air Resources Board of the State of

California.      There are presentiy no actions pending by any governmgntal

agency, either federal, state or county against LIFT, INC.                     All the

requirements and mandates of the prior executive orders have been and


                                     Exhibit A {cont.)
are being abided by and conformed to.

     The basic discription of the product still remains the same.                 LIFPT

FUEL EFFICENCY SYSTEM is a compact unit which can be installed inside

the>engine compértment of any car or truck.               The LIFT FUEL EFFICIENCY

SYSTEM is a vopor induction system.         It has a      .022 open/shut valve.

This set orfice controls the tufbulation of the LIFT fuel and therefore,

the vapor induced into the air—gasoline mixture for each combustion.

The LIFT open/shut valve does not require adjusting.

     Basically, LIFT FUEL EFFICIENCY SYSTEM is composed of a Plastic

Fuel Reservoir or container; Control Valve, Hose and Connecting device,

which attaches to your carburetor‘s Pollution Control Valve             (PVC).

     Within the reservoir is a proprietary blend of chemicals that

vaporize from a balanced formula.         This vapor is drawn off the air

space at the top of the reservoir.         It then leads into the carburetor

to blend with the gasoiine's air mixture before it goes into the

cylindefs.     This catalytic action extends. the burning time of gasolifie,

giving you increased combustion efficiency.

     This application,     in fact a re—application,         is respectively

submitted for immediate consideration.

                The control vaive which admits vapor to the intake manifold is
                mounted on the cap of the bottle. This valve has only two positions
                — fully open or fuily clased. It has an orifice diameter of .022 inches,
                The system contains a standpipe which provides venting to the atmos
                phere. The same model is used for applications to all vehicles.

                         fi




               As the engine vacuum increases, bubbles are formed at the end of the
               standpipe due to the venting action. The rising vapor bubbles violently
               agitate the fluid and tend to increase vaporization. This vaporous—fluid
               mixture enters the engine through the PCV system, or any primary
               vacuum source to base of carbureto. .

1.   +Check all LIFT connections to insure against any vacuum leaks.
2.   For best results, have your engine properly tuned after LIFT
     installation. LIFT will not correct pre—existing engine malfunctions.
3.    Be certain to allow time (1,200 to 1,500 miles) for the LIFT             &
     System to cleanse your engine before achieving its maximum
     efficiency. In most cases you can use a Jower octane gasoline with
     a LIFT System!
4.   Compare your mileage improvement by keeping an accurate record
     on the enclosed warranty card. We would appreciate your
     comments.

                    "Lift Fuel Efficiency System"
                             (Vapor Injector)
                  for Exemption from the Prohibitons
              of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code




I.    Introduction
      St. Clair Sales & Distribution, Inc. of Mt. Clemens, Michigan, has

      applied for exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the

      Motor Vehicle Code for its "Lift Fuel Efficiency System".       This segtion

      prohibits the installation of any device which reduces the effec—

      tivefiess of the motor vehicle emission control system.       The applicant

      is requesting an exemption for 1966—1974 model—year vehicles.


      Based on statements received from St. Clair Sales, they have exclusive

      manufacturing‘and marketing rights to the system described herein.

      Except for the control valve and fluid, the "Lift Fuel Efficiency

      System" is the same in all respects as the "Turbo Vapor Injector" which

      was granted an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 by

      Executive Order D—2, dated April 17, 1973 for 1970 and older vehicles.


11.   System Description

      This device consist of a vapof injection system and proprietary fluid

      which is admitted into the PCV line.       A plastic bottle is mounted in

      the engine compartment with a rubber hose providing the connection

      between the intake manifold and the device.


                                emier w e w   ow   q nevrraee


St. Clair Sales & Distribution, Inc.                                      January 22, 1974




       Inside the plastic bottle is a proprietary fluid, specification

       No. 1072, consisting of water, alcohols, ketones, aromatic hydro—

      carbons, and other organic compounds.                     The applicant claims this

      formulation will enhance engine performance and increase fuel economy.


      The control vaive which admits vapor to the intake manifold fs

      mounted on the cap of the bottle.                This valve has only two positions —

      fuily open or fully closed.             It has an orifice diameter of .022

       inches.     The system contains a standpipe which provides venting to

       the atmosphere.    The same model is used for applications to all

       vehicles.


I11. System Function |

      As the engine vacuum increases, bubbles are formed at the end of the

       standpipe due to the venting action.                 The rising vapor bubbles vio—

      lently agitate the fluid and tend to increase vaporization.                     This

      vaporous—fiuid mixture enters the engine through the PCV system.


I¥.   System Evaluation

      St. Clair Sales and Distributors, Inc. has submitted emission results

      of CVS tests performed by Scott Research Labor&tory.                    The data sub—

      mitted generally show no adverse effect on emissions with this device

      ‘when compared with the baseline data.                    Based on the information

      presented and operating characteristics of the system, no incompatibility

      exists with the accredited oxides of nitrogen retrofit devices.


St. Clair Sales and Distribut%on, Inc.                   January 22, 1974




     Confirmatory testing was performed by the Air Resources Board

     Laboratory.   The device was tested on a 1973 Plymouth/Satellite

     (360 CID) and 1974 Pontiac/Ventura (250 CID).    Steédy state tests

     were performed on the Pontiac and Plymouth and a hot CVS was also

     conducted on the Plymouth.


     The steady state emission results of the Pontiac were generally

     lower than the baseline configuration.   Steady state tests on the

     Pilymouth also showed no significant change in emissions.


     The CVS test on the 1973 Plymouth showed a decrease in carbon

     monoxide and essentially no change in hydrocarbons and oxides of

     nitrogen emissions.   The results of this test are listed below.

     These results were typical of the data submitted by the applicant.


¥.   Conclusion and Recommendation

     The staff is of the opinion that the "Lift Fuel Efficiency System"

     would not have any adverse effect on the existing pollution control

     system.

I.    Introduction

      The Air Resources Board Laboratory has conducted further emission

      testing with thé "Lift Fuel Efficiency System" to confjrm previous

      test results..   This vapor injector is manufactured by St. Clair

     < Sales & Distribution and utflizes a proprietary fluid manufactured

      by Kem Crest Products Company of Farmington, Michigan.    The additional

      tests were performed at the requests qf the Sacramento District

      Attorney and Staff Counsel to investigate the effectiveness of the

      "Lift" device.


      St. Clair Sales & Distribution original application to the Air

      Resources Board for an exemption to Vehicle Code Section 27156 was

      dated November 28, 1973.    An evaluation of the device showed that

      it would not have any adverse effgct on émissions, and consequenily,

      the Staff recormended in a staff report dated January 22, 1974, that

      an exemption be granted.    Executive Order D—24 was issued on January 24,

      1974 granting the exemption to Section 27156 of the Vehic]e.Code.

"Lift Fuel Efficiency System"                                     July 3, 1974



       On May 17, 1974, Executive Order D—24—1 was issued revoking Executive

       Order D—24.    The violation of the conditions of the Executive Order

       led to the revocation.


II.    System Description

       The "Lift Fuel Effictency System" procurred commercially was found

       to be basically the same device evaluated by the ARB staff previously.

       The orifice diameter of the control valve is 0.22 inches which is

      . identical to the device previously evaluated.      The device was re—

       ceived with the proprietory fluid.


       Maximum air flow capacities of the present and original tested

       ‘device are 0.06O0CFM and 0.080 CFM respectively.     (See Figure 1 and

       Figure 2).    The difference is within'manufacturing tolerances.


1. Emission Test Program

      © The test program consisted of three pairs of back to back hot CVS—1

       tests comparing the emissions with and without the device.       The
       three pair tests have been determined by the staff as being sufficient

       to determine whether the device would have a significant effect on

       the emission control system.


       The vehicle selected had the fb11ow1ng specifications:
